What does Bonsai Girls Project feature?
The Bonsai Girls Project on Instagram serves as bonsai inspiration for anyone who wants to start growing small trees of their own. When you scroll through the feed, you’ll see the students together in the rooms with their small trees, working on the projects. There are also a few social images, which show you how much they care about it each other.
While the COVID masks hide their smiles most of the time, they don’t hide their bonsai trees. We’ve seen tables full of them, on display for others to view. Also, there have been sessions where the female students are pruning or general providing bonsai tree care.
Besides the small trees, we’ve also seen various arts and crafts related to bonsais. It’s so enjoyable viewing how much they love working with bonsai trees and the gentle care they practice. It would be interesting to know if they have any values or principles they follow when working with the plants.
There are also some fun social posts, such as emojis and animal filters that will make you laugh. We’ve also seen some interesting techniques, such as moss and soil balls with the tree growing out the top.
